The early years of ministry present unique challenges to the new church worker and pastor.

Quest supports a successful transition into the real world of ministry through a collaborative peer community environment and mentor interaction. This is in-depth support for new (less than 3yrs) church workers and pastors – and their spouses – by trained mentors/leaders through retreat and cohort gatherings.
